>>> Puppy is the Standard Install in my business.
Can be frugally installed in the middle of a NTFS Microsoft partition and perform perfectly.
Can be frugally installed on a USB Pen-Drive with 2GB space, with room for Open-Office.
Can be pre-booted and then call the M$ OS directly (to by-pass the MBR) as a system saver.
Will Read-Write to NTFS, and Linux formats, perfectly.
Of course, that is Just My Opinion, for which I am paid well.
Good Luck to the original poster.
Just found SEMPLICE Linux from Italy. It looks like the Ubuntus (plural?) but its not.
It installs with 256 mb, good driver support, good software, good performance.
Really old laptops like 64mb P166 et al, go find a copy of DamSmallLinux.
Original versions of little Puppy are still available.
